"Road Kill" by Kevin J. Anderson

Other Dan Shamble adventures can be found via the "Kevin J. Anderson"-labeled link below.

Dan Chambeaux (Shamble), P.I., awakes to find himself nailed inside a coffin intended to keep vampires in.  Being a zombie, Dan breaks loose.  He has no memory of how he got here, but a phone call tells him that this was all planned.  Vampire Sebastian Bund is the last "living" witness in the Ma Hemoglobin blood-smuggling case.  The others were accidentally killed, exposed in sunlit cells and the like.

Dan finds himself in the back of a truck when the truck is attacked.  It's Ma Hemaglobin's boys, and they are well-armed.

This is less of mystery than a lightly humorous tale of suspense.  Enjoyable short story/novelette.
